Student-teacher ratio, home-school bills WV House near passage
Ryan Quinn, Charleston Gazette-mail
The West Virginia House of Delegates is on the brink of passing House Bill 3088, which would remove the cap on the number of students per teacher in sixth-grade public school classrooms.
Delegates also are close to passing House Bill 2589, which would allow home-school and private school students to attend county systems’ vocational education schools without being charged more than public school students.
Alongside moving those bills Monday from second reading to their third and final reading, delegates also moved to third reading House Bill 2196, which would allow home-school students to participate in West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission athletics.
